LG Nexus 4 appears in leaked manual and more renders ahead of Google eventAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Hey everyone, have you heard of this phone called the LG Nexus 4? Apparently Google decided to give LG a shot a creating a new Nexus phone and...ok. By this point, most of us are fairly familiar with the Nexus 4, a handset that's been leaking out of a spigot that apparently can't be plugged up. We've already gotten peeks at just about every angle of the Nexus 4, but today it's surfaced in a couple more leaks, and I figured you all might like a some additional last-minute peeks at the device. First up, the @evleaks Twitter account has posted a pair of renders showing a final-looking version of the Nexus 4 at an angle. Both the front and rear are shown, and we can see a normal-looking Android home screen in one and a Nexus logo on the other.
Along with these images, it appears that LG may have jumped the gun a bit and posted a support page and manual for the E960/Nexus 4 on its website. The pages have since been pulled, but Engadget managed to snag a copy (PDF link) before it was yanked. There's not a ton of new information to be found in the guide, but it does confirm the device's "Nexus 4" name as well as the presence of an induction coil for wireless charging. The support documentation also confirmed that there will be 8GB and 16GB versions of the Nexus 4 available.
When it comes to specs, the Nexus 4 is rumored to include features like a 4.7-inch 1280x768 display, quad-core processor and 8-megapixel rear camera. A couple of details that we still don't have after all of these leaks is exactly when the Nexus 4 will go on sale and how much Google will charge for it here in the U.S. The good news is that we'll likely get our official introduction to the Nexus 4 at El Goog's event on Monday, and we'll be there to greet the phone in person once it makes its debut. Good thing that we've got this multitude of leaks to keep us occupied until then.
